I truly wish I was as brave as he. For a lot of people, the hardest thing about decorating a space is committing to a color. I myself recently had one wall re-painted three times!! For Drake, there are no taboo color combinations, he shows us how to be fearless.
I have a gazillion colors in my head at any given moment," says designer Jamie Drake. "If a client has a fabulous antique rug, I'll look at the colors and note down: 'blue plum.' I can read my notes two days later and get that color pretty much on the money." Does he test colors before applying them to a client's walls? The very idea seems almost to offend him: "I pick the color, it goes up, and it's right." Jackie Cooperman-Departures Magazine-Jul/Aug-2002
Ha! If only it was that easy. Take a look at some of Drake's notable interiors. I hope they will inspire you to be confident with color. Pick up that paint brush and JUST DO IT!
